We need to solve many kind of issues to deploy 5G on commercial market. We are going to use new spectrum band – Millimeter Waves. It is quite challenging, we don’t know yet how to deploy mmWave in real environments. Many said that we need to deploy many base stations due to short coverage but at the same time we need to reduce the cost of such deployment too. But I’m sure we can find a good way to deploy 5G in mmWave with reasonable cost.
